R. Sargent Shriver was honored Saturday (Jan.22) as much for his passion for helping others as his loving hugs and enjoyment of baseball. Shriver, who fulfilled his brother-in-law John F. Kennedy’s campaign promise by starting the Peace Corps, developed the aid organization into an international force. Philanthropists and politicians who have worked to help others through charities were among hundreds honoring Shriver at a funeral Massat Our Lady of Mercy Parish, the Shriver family’s church in Potomac, Md.

Under pressure to energize the economy, President Barack Obama said Saturday (Jan. 22) he will use his State of the Union address to outline an agenda to create jobs now and boost American competitiveness over the long term. Heading quickly into re-election mode, Obama is expected to use Tuesday’s prime-time speech to promote spending on innovation while also promising to reduce the national debt and cooperate with emboldened Republicans.
An arctic blast from Canada is responsible for some of the frigid temperatures in the northern U.S. and some of the coldest air to hit the Northeast in two years. The cold was linked to at least two deaths in the Northeast, including that of a woman whose frozen body was found in a driveway. Temperatures were projected to fall well below zero across New England on Sunday night as a high-pressure area builds over the region. The coldest spots will dip to less than 30 degrees below zero, with the wind chill expected to drop to 51 below zero in some places, the National Weather Service said.
A shooting on Sunday (Jan.23) at a Wal-Mart in Port Orchard, Washington, just west of Seattle, left two people dead and two sheriff’s deputies wounded, authorities said. A suspected gunman and a young woman were killed in the gunfire, but it was not immediately certain whether they were together or what link if any there was between them, Washington State Patrol spokeswoman Krista Hedstrom told Reuters. The suspect was killed as he tried to flee and deputies returned. A third, female deputy on the scene was unharmed, but Hedstrom said it was not clear who shot the gunman or the woman who died.
J.C. Penney Co. is getting rid of its catalog business and closing some stores, outlets and call center locations in an effort to streamline operations and boost profits. The department store operator also said Monday that Vornado Realty Trust Chairman Steven Roth and activist investor William Ackman will become board members. Penney’s enacted a “poison pill” in October after both Ackman and Vornado took large stakes in the company.
Passing – Fitness guru Jack LaLanne. He was 96. LaLanne pioneered exercise and fitness on television. His workout show was a television staple from the 1950s to the ’70s. LaLanne and his dog Happy encouraged kids to wake their mothers and drag them in front of the television set. He developed exercises that used no special equipment, just a chair and a towel. He also founded a chain of fitness studios that bore his name and in recent years touted the value of raw fruit and vegetables as he helped market a machine called Jack LaLanne’s Power Juicer.
An explosion ripped through the international arrivals hall at Moscow’s busiest airport on Monday, killing 36 people and wounding about 130, officials said. The Russian president called it a terror attack. The state RIA Novosti news agency, citing law enforcement sources, said the mid-afternoon explosion at Domodevo Airport may have been caused by a suicide bomber. Those at the airport said it was filled with thousands of people at the time and the terminal filled up quickly with smoke.
General Motors Co. sold more cars and trucks in China last year than it did in the U.S., for the first time in the company’s 102-year history.

That’s 30,000 more than GM’s 8.39 million.
The 22-year-old man accused in a deadly Arizona rampage that critically wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords has made his first public statement regarding his role in the shooting: He’s not guilty.

He also faces murder charges in the deaths of a federal judge and another Giffords aide killed in the Tucson shootings, and more charges were expected.
State of the Union – January 25 – Seeking to rally the nation to a new era of creative greatness, President Obama in his State of the Union address called on Americans to put aside partisan differences and unite around a common goal of global competitiveness. “This is our generation’s Sputnik moment,” Obama said, likening the U.S.’s current economic situation to the days when the Soviets beat America into space in the 1950s. He called for new investments in education, medical research and technology in hopes of spurring a similar wave of U.S. innovation that the nation experienced in its space race with the Soviets. To win the future, we’ll need to take on challenges that have been decades in the making,” Obama said, adding “the world…and the rules have changed.”
Some 26.1 million people watched President Obama’s prime-time State of the Union address, as the big four broadcast networks each devoted at least 90 minutes to their coverage.
Toyota Motor is to recall nearly 1.7 million vehicles worldwide including 1.2 million in Japan and 421,000 overseas over a fuel leak risk, the automaker and the Transport Ministry said on Wednesday.

Tens of thousands of Yemenis demanded the president step down in nationwide protests Thursday, taking inspiration from the popular revolt in Tunisia and vowing to continue until their U.S.-backed government falls. Yemen is the latest Arab state to be hit by mass anti-government protests, joining Tunisia and Egypt in calls for revolutionary change. The demonstrations pose a new threat to the stability of Yemen, the Arab world’s most impoverished nation, which has become a haven for al-Qaida militants.
People across the Northeast wearily shoveled their sidewalks and dug out their cars — again — after getting clobbered by the latest in a seemingly never-ending string of snowstorms, this one an overachieving mess that packed more punch than anyone expected. “I’ve lived in New York 70 years, and this year is the worst I remember,” said Lenny Eitelberg, 77. “It’s the continuity of it. It just keeps coming. Every week there’s something new to be worried about. It’s almost become comical.” In the Washington area, up to 7 inches of snow renewed memories of last year’s “snowpocalypse” and created chaos when it hit the nation’s capital at the height of the evening rush hour Wednesday, forcing commuters into treacherous, eight-hour drives home. Even the president got caught in traffic. New York City and the area received about 18 inches
President Barack Obama has chosen Jay Carney, the communications chief to Vice President Joe Biden and a former Time magazine journalist, to be the next White House press secretary.

Fighter jets swooped low over Cairo Sunday (Jan.30) in what appeared to be an attempt by the military to assert control of a city beset by looting, armed robbery and anti-government protests. Minutes before the start of a 4 p.m. curfew, at least two jets made multiple passes over downtown, including a central square where thousands of Egyptians were calling for the departure of President Hosni Mubarak.
Southern Sudan’s referendum commission said Sunday (Jan.30) that more than 99 percent of voters in the south opted to secede from the country’s north in a vote held earlier this month. The announcement drew cheers from a crowd of thousands that gathered in Juba, the dusty capital of what may become the world’s newest country. The weeklong vote, held in early January and widely praised for being peaceful and for meeting international standards, was a condition of a 2005 peace agreement that ended a north-south civil war that lasted two decades and killed 2 million people.
At least 10 people died and more than 40 were hurt when a freight train hit a passenger train head on in eastern Germany, authorities said on Sunday (Jan30.)

A coalition of opposition groups called for a million people to take to Cairo’s streets Tuesday (Feb.1) to demand the removal of President Hosni Mubarak, the clearest sign yet that a unified leadership was emerging for Egypt’s powerful but disparate protest movement. In an apparent attempt to show change, Mubarak named a new government Monday. But the lineup dominated by regime stalwarts was greeted with scorn by protesters camped out for the fourth day in the capital’s central Tahrir, of Liberation, Square.
A federal judge declared the Obama administration’s health care overhaul unconstitutional Monday (Jan.31) siding with 26 states that argued people cannot be required to buy health insurance. Senior U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson agreed with the states that the new law violates people’s rights by forcing them to buy health insurance by 2014 or face penalties. He went a step further than a previous ruling against the law, declaring the entire thing unconstitutional if the insurance requirement does not hold up.
It’s unanimous. And Tom Brady has outdone even himself. The record-setting Patriots quarterback is the leading vote-getter for The Associated Press 2010 NFLAll-Pro Team, the seventh straight year at least one player has gotten every vote. Three years ago, when Brady set the league record for touchdown passes, he missed by a half-vote of being unanimous, sharing a ballot with Brett Favre. As usual, Brady prefered to deflect praise to the rest of the Patriots, who went 14-2 this season before losing in the playoffs to the Jets.
